Sports Reporter vs. Pro Football, College Football and Baseball! We have got action every day as the 2018 Football season is upon us!
FIRST ISSUE OF SPORTS REPORTER for 2018 Football will post on the Web site for online members on Tuesday, August 28!

Every day, year-round, Sports Reporter provides daily analyses, stats and selections published exclusively online in what we call the DAILY BRIEF, refreshed daily each and every morning for Web members with Basketball (NBA and College) and Baseball (MLB) coverage.

If you have never been a member, you can view a free sample (near top of right column on this page), and/or purchase a live, one-day sample of the DAILY BRIEF (and download the week's SPORTS REPORTER and MIDWEEK UPDATE Football papers at the same time!) for only $9.95. Or, you can get continuous access to the DAILY BRIEF (and our two weekly publications during football season) for 30 days for only $39.95. That is one heck of a great value when NFL, College Football and NBA and College Hoops are all in play at the same time, or even when they are not!

SEPTEMBER 10, 2018 -- If I was a subscriber, do you know what my reply to that headline would be? ‘Big friggin’ deal! Do it again next weekend, and then again the weekend after that. We don’t want NFL outcomes that could have been busted in the final minute. You should have highlighted Baltimore, over Buffalo! We want to win 47-3, not these cheesy Jaguars and Browns life-and-death at the end scenarios!” To which, as director of this operation, I would respond, ‘You’re darn right!’
Teams on the College Football Worst three-season ATS list who played main-board this past weekend included: Hawaii (L), Arizona (L), East Carolina (W), Connecticut (L), Kansas (W), UCLA (W), South Alabama (L), Charlotte (W), Cincinnati (W), Utah State (W). That’s 6-4 for the “Worst” teams, which is kind of the way it’s supposed to be. Teams on the Best three-season ATS list who played main-board games were: Temple (L), Wisconsin (L), Oklahoma (L), Northwestern (L), South Florida (W), Clemson (L), Eastern Michigan (W), Iowa State (L). That’s 2-6 ATS for the “Best” teams, which is kind of the way it’s supposed to be. Just keepin’ everyone on their toes, while other places pump these “Value Trends!” as if they’re supposed to continue until the end of time. Who’s the SR dope who didn’t follow to his own company’s info, and picked Clemson?
I’m reading a book called The Signal and The Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail – But Some Don’t, by Nate Silver. MORE
